Old Montreal and McGill, just majestic

Although I’ve been studying at Université de Montréal and probably should show some loyalty, I’ve visited McGill a couple of times and it just looks like a proper British inspired university!

Now that on the left above, that’s a humanities faculty!

And yes, that’s a serious engineering department from when real men did real work engineering real stuff.

The one on the right is actually a house in a street near McGill, I just loved it.

And then there’s Old Montreal, down by the Port in the commercial area. The tourist spots are a bit like Sydney’s Rocks, but still a great wander and plenty to watch.

Time for a refreshing ale and a bit of a chat after all that walking and retailing.

Once you’re passed the ladies it’s serious commerce.

Are those leaves always that colour or am I perhaps not the only one sensing that summer is on its way out?

Makes you want to reach for a frock and heels! Champagne cocktails anyone?

I write as a way of processing and reflecting on experience, and as a way of sharing that experience. When I travel I used to write email journals back to friends, family, anyone who’d read and risk immersing themselves in my reality for a while: writing for them was a way of writing for me. Borrowing from Graham Greene in a flip of Travels with my Aunt, I imagined writing letters to my nieces, as their travelling aunt. Crafting the sentences became a way of extruding the experience, giving it birth, drawing its meaning from my soul, nurturing it into something tangible with a life of its own. The aim of my blog is to open the world to my thought-children, to let them out of the safety of my friends and family and let them experience the world. And in the process I get the honour of taking a larger group with me when I’m wandering around India and beyond, or just reflecting on parallel truths, thinking thoughts that take me to new places new beginnings. Please journey with me
